Hi Guys,

I have some older pics shot many, many years ago. Many of them from Southern Steam Trips with the J 611, N&W 1218 and the 4501. Yeah I was a kid but I still even amaze myself at soem of the great shots I took back then. When I scan them in what size shopuld I do them at and how can I improve the quality of them for Railpictures consideration?

Photos must be at least 800 pixels in width x 500 pixels in height for landscape images, or 600 pixels in height for portraits. Photos not meeting these requirements will, unfortunately, be rejected. Optimal size for uploaded images is 1024 pixels wide x 768 pixels high. ( these words from uploading page )

If you scan your photo at a Larger size than 1024x768 I would use a photo program and resize it either to a lower resolution than 1024 x 768. I have subited a few photos larger than 1024 x 768 and they were accepted and resized to meet the specs and the picture lost some the quality it had before. If you scanner is a good scanner and your picture is of good quality then reworking wont be needed.
